    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Utah State steamrolled the rest of the Western Athletic Conference with one of the best seasons in school history, winning the regular-season title by five games.

    With an NCAA berth not quite a sure thing and so many close games during the season, the 23rd-ranked Aggies aren’t going to take any gambles on their trip to The Strip.
